Proposed method, called Probabilistic Nodes Combination (PNC), is the method of 2D data interpolation and extrapolation. Nodes are treated as characteristic points of information retrieval and data forecasting. PNC modeling via nodes combination and parameter γ as probability distribution function enables 2D point extrapolation and interpolation. Two-dimensional information is modeled via nodes combination and some functions as continuous probability distribution functions: polynomial, sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, logarithm, exponent, arc sin, arc cos, arc tan, arc cot or power function. Extrapolated values are used as the support in data forecasting.
